I read about a lot of "problems" folks have with their 5er on this forum, but I just want to say that I'm really glad to be the owner of a very fine automobile. I've had my 540 for about 4 years and I still enjoy it every time I get in it. I enjoy blowing away any punk next to me with a big wing and an oversized tailpipe. I enjoy driving past the SUVs in the ditch on my way to work. I teach Calculus first hour at the Air Force Academy and I've never been late, even in the winter. I enjoy the timeless good looks and classic lines that always draw attention in a sea of lookalike clonemobiles. I enjoy the 29 MPG that it gets consistantly. I even enjoy the 160 MPH top speen on occasion thanks to the Dinan chip.
OK, I'll be back next week to get advise on the problems.
